Best of Show- Quilt Manawatu, Symposium 2015

I know Symposium closed over a week ago now, but I needed time to recover before posting! I live in Northland so it was a long road trip to get to Palmerston North, but of course to was worth it. Anyway on to important stuff....Quilts. 

The best of show “Is It Art” by Melanie Martin of Tauranga.
I thought this was a superb quilt, I especially loved the clever use of ombre fabrics that did make the word QUILTING look like it was spray painted.

The quilting was also really fantastic and I wish I had taken more photos to show that, but you can see a little detail of the quilting in the background of the label photo below.
